i have been told that the cost to build a new kingdom hall is $500k +.
i have a background in commercial construction and this seems pretty high to me, considering all the free labor.
that is just the cost of the building, excluding the lot price.

since i started actually reading the bible about three years ago i have found the similarities between the pharisees and the society to be amazing.
tell me your thoughts on this example or others you've come across.

if judicial committees have jehovahs direction and holy spirit why must they be made up of three members?
is the holy spirit not capable of communicating its wishes to just one person alone?
or is it perhaps to give the appearance of fairness and justice.

i'm sure most of you who have spent any time in or around the org have noticed the emphasis placed on the need for an organization.
i'm not sure if the emphasis has been increasing or if i am just more aware of it now, but the trust and faith that most witnesses place in "the organization" is shocking and scary at times.
i was reading the account of the tower of babel a few days ago and noticed some similarities with the organization.
